Big timer sunset trigger

Hi all. I just want to do a simple trigger when it's sunset. But big timer isn't working.

Can someone share a sample one that works please ? Even if it's sunrise

Thank you

Well, BigTimer does work, but you do need to have the settings correct for it to happen.

Have you set/entered the Latitude and Longitude?

This is a working one that does those needs, but you WILL have to change the Lat/Long.

It's easy to setup with the Cron+ node.

But you do have to do the Lat/Long - yes?

Yes, but in Cron+ it's 2 mouse clicks, and it's input automatically!

[EDIT -] OK it's 3!


Thanks so much. Cron plus worked great in this use but I will need big timer in other flows.

Thanks again.

No problems.

Not to promote any more more than another, but why use Big Timer?

Cron Plus does the same (and more) I belive.


Cause it's what I thought would do It. Just migrated my hubitat over to HA and using node red for everything. It's amazing. Will take a good look at both.
